[00:00] <G4SGX> I've written code for micro-controllers and linux platforms for many years, some interfacing with RF units but know nothing of 'flight dynamics'. Alot to learn but all very exciting.

[00:02] <arko> HABEX2 HAS BEEN RECOVERED
[00:02] <willdude123> Did AVA stop transmitting or domething?

[00:03] <Wolfy-K4GHL> way to go!!!!
[00:04] <willdude123> mfa: Is the aprs dead too?

[00:05] <G4SGX> mfa298: I think because the Rasberry Pi can run Linux (reduced) it really opens up new new possibilies in terms of interfacing and software control.
[00:05] <mrvica> I guess that this was already asked, but what's with the pictures on http://ssdv.habhub.org/ ?

[00:07] <willdude123> Sorry

[00:07] <arko> 50m east of predicted landing site
[00:07] <arko> thanks to all the predictor devs!!!
[00:07] <mfa298> G4SGX: for HAB i think the pi is a mixed bag, it gives a broader rangle of languages to code in, but you loose some of the benefits of a micro-controller
[00:07] <mrvica> haha, that is what I thaught
[00:07] <mrvica> :D
[00:08] <mfa298> I dont thinkbit banging rtty at 50bd on a gpio worked well as other processes on the cpu mess up the timing
[00:09] <willdude123> He couldbe making it transmit really high res images instead.
[00:10] <Morseman> arko 50m seems well within the GPSR 'ballpark' even after they took away selective random error...
[00:11] <arko> hehe
[00:13] <Morseman> arko Glad to hear payload recovered, especially given where it dropped. Good luck with interrogating the memory to get back as much info on the flight as you can.

[00:25] <G4SGX> mfa298: In that case maybe use a PIC for the RTTY and I/O and a Rasberry for the rest? I think its possible to make a custom kernel to avoid those sort of timing errors though maybe.

[01:42] <Darkside> you said TR2M?
[01:43] <Darkside> din't know anything about those
[01:43] <Darkside> i think RocketBoy used onw
[01:44] <Darkside> you'd be wanting to use the AF input i guess
[01:44] <Darkside> not the digital in
[01:45] <Darkside> AF in would be the equivalent of the NTX2's TXD pin
[01:46] <Sweeper__> yeah, thats what I'm using, like I have the physical connections I think
[01:46] <Sweeper__> I'm just having a hard time interfacing it with an arduino
[01:46] <Darkside> can't really help with that

[01:50] <Darkside> Wolfy-K4GHL: not applicable
[01:50] <Darkside> its not a TNTX2
[01:50] <Darkside> NTX2*
[01:50] <Darkside> well, only partially applicable
[01:50] <Darkside> i'm guessing his problem si more with programming the TR2M for the right frequency
[01:51] <Sweeper__> yeah, like I have the frequency that I need and I understand how to get it set up with the transmitting functionality but the receiving concept is still what I'm working with
[01:51] <Darkside> oh
[01:51] <Sweeper__> this is also in conjunction with using ax25 packets
[01:51] <Darkside> i wouldn't receive on the TR2M
[01:51] <Darkside> well
[01:51] <Darkside> nobody here has used those modules to receive data
[01:52] <Sweeper__> i used that tutorial to get ahold of the transmission and it greatly helped
[01:52] <Darkside> the modules have only been used as they are a way of getting an agile, frequency-stable payload working
[01:53] <Wolfy-K4GHL> http://www.radiometrix.com/files/additional/tr2m.pdf

[01:56] <Sweeper__> Thing is I'm comfortable with the arduino but I'm new to using the radio, like from the radio I have TXD/RXD/RSSI/SQF/AFOUT and AFIN and from my arduino I have Data IN/DataOut/Power (turns on/off)/ and sqf

[01:57] <Darkside> so you want to use the TX2D as a receiver?
[01:57] <Darkside> im not sure how well that'd work
[01:58] <Darkside> i guess if it has a 1200 baud modem in it it should be able to decode AX25 packets
[01:58] <Darkside> well, decode the bitstream anyway

[05:01] <Wolfy-K4GHL> The G2-Moderate Geomagnetic Storm Watch is still in effect for 13-14 April. The initial shock from the coronal mass ejection observed on 11 April was reflected at our own Boulder magnetometer (shown above) around 6:55pm ET (22:55 GMT). Magnetometers around the world measure the change in Earth's magnetic field and register the sudden impulse at different strengths depending on location
[05:01] <Wolfy-K4GHL> and sometimes geological factors. The storm has its own magnetic field, and like two bar magnets, if the storm's magnetic field is opposite the Earth's magnetic field they connect well and the effects observed here on Earth are enhanced (i.e. better aurora viewing opportunities!). We are still waiting for the main driver of the storm and expect to see an increase in geomagnetic field
[05:01] <Wolfy-K4GHL> activity over the next several hours if the storm connects well. Keep an eye out in the Northern tier states around local midnight if you have clear skies, you just might get to see the light show.

[05:29] <geneva_bed> ?
[05:29] <daveake> OK if the rtty quit then the processor probably stopped

[06:15] <daveake> If it's PIE there'll be 2 carriers about 4kHz apart
[06:16] <HB9DTX> Don't hear the 2nd carrier
[06:16] <daveake> ok ta

[11:01] <Geoff-G8DHE> If you check around someone is doing them with the standard TV software as well ob mini cd
[11:01] <tim__> so it will track HAB's with that antena?

[11:44] <craag> It's supposed to go into a 'pedestrian mode' on the GPS to reduce noise, but that's triggered by altitude <1000m, which it isn't!
[11:44] <Darkside> hehe
[11:44] <willdude123> So ava is just on really high ground?
[11:44] <Darkside> yes
[11:44] <Darkside> on a mountain
[11:44] <willdude123> Heh.
[11:44] <willdude123> What about PIE?
[11:44] <Darkside> PIEs battery is dead
[11:44] <Darkside> its probably burst and landed by now
[11:44] <Darkside> given how AVA went
[11:45] <Darkside> no backup tracker
[11:45] <Darkside> wasnt going to work so well across different countries anyway
[11:45] <M0RBD> It might be in a Swiss bankvault

[13:40] <Wolfy-K4GHL> I am talking with VERY little experience with them if any at all, but isnt there a kit for those that does distance measuring? I have seen the kits in the store .. was wondering if it could be incorporated to echo off the ground and if a sig is received at a certain distance to ground that it could be set to put it into ped mode?

[13:42] <Darkside> depends on your definition of stationary
[13:42] <Darkside> you'd allow for gps noise
[13:43] <Wolfy-K4GHL> does it have a parachute that is deployed or ? how is it returned to earth?
[13:43] <Darkside> eh?

[13:44] <Darkside> the parachute is just sitting in the line, already unfurled

[13:44] <Wolfy-K4GHL> ahhh
[13:44] <g4sgx-iain> What is pedestrian mode? not GPS pedestrian mode i take it.
[13:44] <Darkside> willdude123: http://pipe2.darklomax.org/pics/2012-10-07_Horus_29/Pages/25.html
[13:44] <Darkside> Wolfy-K4GHL:
[13:45] <eroomde> g4sgx-iain: indeed, it's a gps setting
[13:45] <eroomde> it means the gps can make ceertain assumptions about your dynamics, to help improve its position estimate
[13:45] <eroomde> eg you will be below a certainly altitude, speed, and acceleration
[13:46] <Wolfy-K4GHL> ahhhh neat pic thanks
[13:46] <eroomde> the positions the gps units output are not the exact ones calculated from the gps signals, because there is a moderate amount of random error on those. instead it collects a few of them and uses then in conjunction with an internal dynamics model to answer the question 'what is my most likely position given these noisy gps signals and what i know about how i can move'
[13:47] <g4sgx-iain> OK, I thought that was just for journey times. Tnx
[13:47] <Wolfy-K4GHL> too bad you couldnt put the balloon under the chute so the chute basically holds the balloon...

[13:53] <Wolfy-K4GHL> I may be wrong, but I think I remember in the US it has to have a remote "bring it down now" system in case of interference ...

[15:05] <Robint91> on3ptz, which is enough if you use slow data rates
[15:06] <Robint91> but if you want to experiment with some higher rates you need more power

[15:06] <mfa298> nommo: for the 2M samples rate I think it's something like 30mbit/s which can be pushing the limits of wifi
[15:06] <Jokull_> I understood that baloons are located on http://spacenear.us/tracker/ by continuously transmitting their payload GPS'ed coordinates via a 70cm emittor, which is gathered on gound by internet-connected 70cm receiver. But how is OM1AMJ reporting is own location live to spacenear.us? Via a special app on his smartphone?
[15:06] <Upu> Jokull_ he's got an APRS transmitter on him

[15:26] <PD3EM> from the APRS positions it looks like a recovery now but maybe OM1ATS can confirm?
[15:26] <Laurenceb_> is bonzo a latex balloon?

[15:55] <mfa298> willdude123: you should have been tracking balloons, BONZO probably went right over you so you should have been able to recieve it
[15:55] <JB2Cool> AVA still broadcasting the same position. There is someone on-site but looks like AVA may be stuck in a tree
[15:55] <fsphil> JB2Cool: it's been recovered, was on the ground
[15:55] <K9JKM> Expensive too ... solar panels on a cubesat are around $6000 US for one side of the cube
[15:55] <Wolfy-K4GHL> This may sound like a stupid question, but has anyone launched two or more balloons on a single payload ? and is there any disadvantage to doing that?
[15:55] <JB2Cool> ok, cool. Good job

[15:56] <mfa298> Wolfy-K4GHL: it's done with small foil party balloons sometimes (like the current BONZO flight)
[15:56] <schmidp> to bad I just found out about this 10 minutes ago. it landed about and hour of driving from my home.
[15:56] <gonzo_> H2 !? I could not comment
[15:56] <MissDee> AndrewS: re solar panels, also note that it was dark for half its flight

[15:58] <kokey> Wolfy-K4GHL: thanks :)
[15:58] <willdude123> But that did go right over me.
[15:58] <Graham_G3VZV> re solar cells - 25%+ efficient cheap ones for a balloon flight are available and have almost zero mass but are very fragile unless on a backing plate..then they get heavy
[15:58] <CHRISG7OGX> lost Bonzo6 on the south coast
[15:59] <jcoxon> there is also a argument about temperatures of the solar cells
[15:59] <willdude123> mfa298: 500m or so now, but never mind.
[15:59] <GMT> how much of a backing-plate - sticky-back plastic any good?
[15:59] <jcoxon> there have been flights with cells that have melted
[15:59] <Wolfy-K4GHL> got a friend and fellow ham on the phone and am sending him the photo links and all and we are discussing using two weather balloons in hopes of getting a payload over the big pond into Europe :)

[15:59] <jcoxon> Wolfy-K4GHL, i'd avoid 2 balloons
[15:59] <mfa298> willdude123: this one never was a high flight - max was around 2km.
[15:59] <AndrewS> Right, so extra batteries is probably a better solution to longer transmit-time than adding solar panels?
[15:59] <GMT> still an S9+ signal from BONZO
[16:00] <gonzo_> yep, gently coming down.
[16:00] <Graham_G3VZV> Proper ones wouldnt have melted:)

[16:07] <x-f> we need a simple "last transmitted XX:XX ago" field on spacenear.us
[16:07] <fsphil> Time: does that
[16:07] <fsphil> below each payload name
[16:07] <x-f> last received
[16:07] <x-f> fsphil, yes, but different timezones etc.
[16:07] <SpooHaHa> Right, I was trying to do the time math from here in the states and apparently failed at GST to GMT
[16:07] <gonzo_> jcoxon, when I was inflating them, I left an oppen straw in each on the necks, and connected the fill tube as req. there seemes to be none coming out, as it was all gathering at the top. So I assume if a split was low down, they could still keep some gas above the split?
[16:08] <mfa298> someitnh that could also include a short statement would be useful as well (like: failed due to battery/cold)
[16:08] <lbm> what is the difference between the green and blue circles on the spacenear.us tracker?
[16:08] <fsphil> all times on the tracker are UTC
[16:08] <SpooHaHa> *CST
[16:08] <Wolfy-K4GHL> x-f there is one
[16:08] <fsphil> lbm: inside the green circle, the payload is >5 degrees from the horizon
[16:08] <fsphil> the blue circle is >0 degrees
[16:08] <fsphil> so this is the payloads own horizon
[16:09] <Wolfy-K4GHL> if you are running windows 7 you can add an additional time clock to your regular clock so when you mouse over it it will show UTC as well as local time

[16:44] <kokey> another strange thing, since the ublox now doesn't spit out junk any more, the rfm22 also stopped drifting
[16:44] <eroomde> quite enjoying it
[16:44] <chrisstubbs> Erm, just seen this notam: http://notaminfo.com/explain?id=119216

[16:44] <jcoxon> eroomde, hehe - it is interesting
[16:44] <jcoxon> obviously all condensed - its usually very boring
[16:45] <daveake> cuddykid yes
[16:45] <eroomde> if you wanted a hypothosis for the sake of it, *possibly* that the ublox uses more current in aquisition mode (and less once locked) and the higher current draw is affecting your VCC voltage
[16:45] <eroomde> and that's causing the rfm22 to wander around a bit
[16:45] <cuddykid> daveake: wow, that's heavy :P guessing a two person job to get into car

[17:03] <eroomde> oh i see. well from the point of view of dlfldigi you can call yourself anything
[17:04] <eroomde> but to have a recognised callsign you need to have some kind of ham license
[17:04] <eroomde> the foundation one is very easy and i'd recommend it
[17:04] <lbm> okay, so i guess the irc nick is sufficient
[17:04] <eroomde> in the UK you'd get a license starting with M6
[17:04] <eroomde> then 3 letters of your choosing (provided they're not already taken)
[17:04] <chrisstubbs> most of them now are
[17:04] <chrisstubbs> :(
[17:04] <andytherocketeer> always thought about doing that. but, then not being in the UK boogers things up a bit
[17:05] <eroomde> where are you?
[17:05] <andytherocketeer> unless the german equivalent is easy peasy too, and in english?
[17:05] <lbm> i'm from denmark though, currently investigating the requirements :-)
[17:05] <eroomde> you'd have to ask some of the germans! I'd imagine they're not too dissimilar though
[17:05] <andytherocketeer> actually. might enquire at work. think they have a radio club.
[17:06] <eroomde> but to receive, as you realise you don't need any license. it can be quite useful though. Especially for chasing
[17:06] <eroomde> in the uk at least, using a mobile phone while driving is banned but operating an amateur radio is allowed
[17:06] <lbm> exactly
[17:07] <lbm> oh :-)
[17:07] <Lunar_Lander> andytherocketeer, the german ham radio exam seems to be easy

[17:55] <mfa298> Ijon_Tichi: BONZO was a much smaller balloon (a pair of foil party baloons) so doesn't go as high and there's more chance ofthe balloons spliting (they don't expand like larger latex balloons)
